Question: Toshiba D-R400 recording functions

Thinking of buying a Toshiba D-R400...I want to copy programs recorded into my Optimum DVDR cable box using this Toshiba recorder...then play on a DVD player at a different TV...my questions are a) can it copy after-the-fact from the cable DVDR memory or does it only copy in real time and b) can it record in the 16:9 aspect ratio? Thanks, Mike
